Catching up

Whew, it's been a long time.  Here are some things that I have been working on, but never got around to posting.

I still have not learned how to successfully make a shaker card!  The sequins keep getting stuck!  I used the package from a set of heart doilies and glued it down to cardstock to make this card.  The rose is from rose garden thinlits from Stampin Up.

The dies are hey, hi, hello from Wplus9 that I bought at Simon Says Stamp. 

The pumpkin is a Tim Holtz Sizzix Bigz die called Jack o Lanterns.  The arrows are from a Stampin Up set called Draw the Line and the words are from a set called Big Scripty Greetings by Simon Says Stamp.

The birch tree die is from Taylored expression and the sentiment is from Stampin Up's set called Antique Tags.  Love the Pacific Point and white for nice contrast.

The background card and the wood ornament are from the Project Life kits available from Stampin Up.  I believe this is from the seasonal kit.  The ornament top is from the Stampin Up set Sparkly Seasons.  Thanks for looking - Heidi.

Winnie the Pooh punch cards

When I was at Goodwill a month ago I found a Winnie the Pooh punch from All Night Media.  I decided to make a couple of cards with it.  Please see below and let me know what you think.

The punch is very cute!  For the card below I used my Sizzix Framelits Triple Circle Flip-its dies.  I did just punch Pooh out of Summer Sun cardstock, but he didn't look right.  I had to draw in his shirt with a Real red marker - PERFECT!

This last card uses the Die-namics Square Grid Cover-up die from My Favorite Things.  I love that die as it is so versatile!

Thanks for looking and have a great night! - Heidi

Ornamental Christmas Card

Here's a quick card using the new Delicate Ornament Thinlits Dies from Stampin Up.  For this card I embossed the background using the
Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The ornaments were cut from red and green foil paper.  The sentiment is from the matching stamp set called Embellished Ornaments in Poppy Parade ink.  This is a 4 X 6 card.  Not too hard and nice to look at. - Heidi

Hot Air Balloons

I saw the Hot Air Balloons Reverse Die from Serendipity Stamps and knew that I had to have it.

I used it three ways:

First simple and easy cut from cardstock with white behind it.

Next cut from white cardstock with designer paper behind it.  Neat effect with the right paper.

Lastly, cut in white and cut a million times more with the piece glued in to make it multicolored and fabulous.  Which is your favorite? - Heidi

It's been a long time

The last post a did was a cute card for my best friend, Letty.  That was in April.  Sadly, my friend died suddenly of a heart attack on July 11th at a too young age of 41.  She leaves behind her husband and three kids ages 5,2 and 1 year old.  Sad and tragic indeed. 

Here is her obituary:

Letitia "Letty" Laura Murdoch Jordan

Letitia Letty Laura Murdoch Jordan

LONGVIEW Services celebrating the life of Letitia Letty Laura Murdoch Jordan are pending at St. Pauls Church in Killeen, Texas. Born April 15, 1974, in Superior, Wisconsin, the only child of Mary and Ian Murdoch, Letty passed away suddenly at her home in Killeen last week.
Letty arrived in Longview at the age of six weeks and was subsequently educated at St. Marys School, Trinity School of Texas, and Forest Park Middle School. At 14, she and her parents moved to Racine, Wisconsin, where she graduated from William Horlick High School and the University of Minnesota at Minneapolis. There she majored in speech communication and was a proud member of the Tri Delta Sorority (Social). Letty then returned to Longview, and in 2003 she graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Texas at Tyler. The next year she began her ten-year teaching career at General Shoemaker High School in Killeen. Always seeking to inspire her students, she served as a teacher of Communication Applications and World History and was a girls Soccer Coach. In 2008 Letty was awarded a masters degree in Computer Programming.
At Shoemaker, Letitia met Greg Jordan, a physics teacher and Boys Soccer Coach, and the couple married May 24, 2008, at the Inn of Salado. Because it was Memorial Day weekend, they returned to school the following Tuesday and postponed until the summer a honeymoon in Scotland.
Letitia is survived by her husband, Greg Jordan, and four children, Ian, Duncan, Daisy, Declan, her parents and Gregs parents, Effie and Larry Jordan. She is also survived by numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, uncles and aunts, devoted friends, and former students.
Letty was a gifted seamstress and gained great satisfaction from creating her childrens clothes. She enjoyed her friends and neighbors and students, and she made a positive difference in every life she touched. She was a caring daughter and wife, but perhaps she found her greatest joy in her children, the littles, as she called them.
I love you Letty and I miss  you terribly! - Heidi

Letitia's Birthday

My very good friend, Letitia had her birthday on April 15th.  This is the card that I made for her.

How cute is that?  The stamps are from Lawn Fawn and called Chit Chat and Hello Sunshine.  There are matching dies to these stamps as well.  I also used the dies stitched hillside borders from Lawn Fawn to make the landscape.  The paper is from My Mind's Eye and it is called Home. Have a great day - Heidi.

Floral Frames of Faith

Good morning to you all!  When I was out at Goodwill I saw this picture frame.  It is made of heavy cardboard and folds up like a small book.  You can stand this frame up and display it also.  I have a patient going through a rough time and I had an idea of what to do with this folding frame so I could give it to her.  Check it out below.
The triple frame is gorgeous on it's very own.  I used PictureMonkey to print out the words, then I cut them out and popped them into the frames.  I hope she likes it and I hope it will give her encouragement.  Have a great day! - Heidi
